Skylar recently graduated from St. Lawrence University in May of 2022. She majored in Global Studies and Spanish and minored in Gender and Sexuality Studies, and completed an Honors SYE project this past spring in order to fulfill the requirements of the Global Studies major. She studied abroad in Madrid on the Spain program in the Fall of 2021, and drew from my research and experiences there while writing my Honors thesis. Skylar feels very fortunate to have been awarded a CIIS travel grant for a rock climbing trip in Catalonia, Spain at the conclusion of her semester abroad. The details of this project can be viewed on this page.
After graduation, she relocated from her hometown in New Hampshire to Portland, Maine, and completed an 8-week internship as an Editorial Coordinator for Weave News. Skylar is now hoping to get involved in the non-profit sector, social services, and/or journalism. She is interested in taking on a role serving the large New American community in Portland.
